I remember hearing this song on pop radio back in the day, regularly. it must have has strong crossover type appeal.
most exotica groups play this song, but martin denny made it famous in the late 50's. it was originally written by les baxter on his 'ritual of the savage' album from 1951 - strangely this group ixtahuele from sweden is now carrying the (tiki) torch for this weird polynesian/american (50's america) hybrid sound.
